Once again!! Someone hunting in the Norco swamp is cited for breaking game laws. This type of hunter needs to lose all his hunting rights for the rest of his life. This brings nothing but trouble and headache to all the hunters that cherish and appreciate going out and having a enjoyable hunt.

i hope the owners of this land (where people have trespassed for years) will step forward and stop people from hunting on their property. year after year this type of activity goes on and its time for someone to put a stop to it!

This is a note of warning to everyone who hunts in the Norco swamp (bayou trepanier). As many people know there is a major project being constructed in bayou trepanier (aka hot water canal) The canal is being capped from the lauch where many people access the swamp back to the protection levee. PLEASE NOTE THAT A MOJORITY OF THE LAND IN THIS AREA IS LEASED LAND!!! All the land off of the destrehan canal is owned by the Monteleone family, The Sarpy family, And the Gust family who leases this land to hunting clubs in the area. The area that most people hunt and believe to be 'PUBLIC' is actually a industrial subdivision that is broken into lots that no one leases. This subdivison is nearest to the upper guide level where the project is taking place

THE HUNTING CLUBS IN THE AREA ARE PREPARING FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF PEOPLE TRESPASSING DUE TO THE LACK OF NORMAL ACCESS TO THE HOT WATER CANAL AND THE CONSTRUCTION IN THE AREA THAT WILL MAKE FOR BAD HUNTING. THESE CLUBS HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THE ST CHARLES PARISH SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT AS WELL AS LA WILDLIFE AND FISHERIES TO PREVENT ANYONE FROM TRESPASSING ON THEIR PROPERTY.

PLEASE NOTE IF ANYONE IS CAUGHT ON THESE LEASED PROPERTIES HE/SHE WILL BE REPORTED TO THE AUTHORITIES AND CHARGES WILL BE FILED.

ANYONE WITH QUESTIONS OF THE PROPERTY LINES CAN ACCESS A COPY OF THE LAND OWNER MAP THROUGH THE ST CHARLES PARISH COURT HOUSE.

Build a wood duck box and have the hen sticking out of the box with the male standing on top. Seen this done once before and it was by far the best wood duck mount i have ever seen

A comment titled: Dont shoot it in response to a report titled: duck ID

If you cant identify what a duck is in flight you should not even shoot it. If you cant identify a duck after you shoot it. You shouldnt even be hunting.

A comment titled: There is no confusion in response to a report titled: NORCO SWAMP HUNTER CITED

If you would read the document correctly it states that the bayou is approximately 15,500 feet in length. It is a senic bayou being that it is a natural water way.

The bayou is broken down into 'reaches'
The first reache is 5,500 feet
The next is 5,500 feet
And the third is 4,500 feet

Add this up and what do you get? 15,500 feet. So this document is talking about the bayou ONLY.

Still sounds bogus? Sounds like i have all my ducks in a row. NO PUN INTENDED.

If you want to find the 'FACTS' go to the parish court house and get a landowner map and you will see that none of the land in this area is public.
THE ONLY PUBLIC HUNTING LAND IN LOUISIANA IS MANAGMENT AREAS &FEDERAL/STATE GAME RESERVES. All of these areas are posted with signs stating it is a managment area or game reserve.There are also maps online that show you public land in louisiana. NONE OF THIS LAND IS LISTED ANYWHERE. What more proof is needed?

Yakn4fish,

The publication you have posted is for the Bayou Trepanier waterway only. That as well as Destrehan Canal are natural water ways so this makes the a navigable water way.

The land bordering these water way is owned and leased by someone. Thats the problem people have they think since the water is public that the land that borders it is also public. nothing can be further from the truth.

And as for why i didnt reply to your email. Because it looked like you were trying to find out where this land was located so you can come and hunt there. And the last thing i want to do is give information to another yahoo that can come and make things worst than they even are already.

A comment titled: You are correct in response to a report titled: NORCO SWAMP WARNING!!

I would like to apologize for posting this warning. I guess it would of been better to just let people be surprised with a trespassing charge when they go out hunting this season. Cheers to everyone and happy hunting.

A comment titled: lets set it straight in response to a report titled: NORCO SWAMP WARNING!!

None of the swamp in Norco is PUBLIC. It is all owned by someone and 90% of it is leased for hunting/trapping. There are no GREY areas. The property owners as well and the leaseholders have aerial maps of property lines in black and white, no grey. As far as the wardens not knowing who owns the land that has been ironed out as of this year by meetings with the clubs and the wildlife and fisheries as well as the st charles parish sheriff.

The post is simple. If you hunt the small area that is broken into lots that is labeled and industrial subdivision NO ONE CARES.

The leaseholders just do not want people crossing into there property. The amount of trespassing in recent years has become astronomical and its time to take corrective actions.

If you believe this is false information go to the st charles parish court house and request the landowner map. This information is available to the public at no cost. then you will see everything i have stated is FACT.

A comment titled: agree in response to a report titled: NORCO SWAMP WARNING!!

mr donaldson,

i to agree that hunting is about making memories and having a good time. But everyone knows that there are a bunch of bad apples that ruin the bunch. For years the people who leased the land in this area have turned a blind eye to all the others that have hunted the industrial subdivision area. But as of lately more people have started to move into areas that are leased.

More importantly many complaints have came from people that i know (that do not have a lease but hunt the swamp) that there have been problems with poeple hunting 50ft away, shooting ducks out of season, etc. This in itself makes for a bad hunting experiece.

We are just trying to correct this issue and make this area a better place to hunt for those who enjoy and appreciate this little piece of heaven known as the la branche wetlands.

Maybe a few tickets will help clear all the rif raf and give this piece of land back to the locals who have hunted this area their whole life. And just maybe things can go back to how they once were.

There are many management areas located throughout the state where people can go and have an enjoyable hunting trip.

*on a side note for the past two years LA wildlife and fisheries has been patrolling this area during the opening weekend of teal season and the number of tickets that they have written has been astounding. this kind of hunter needs to be ran as far away from this area as possible*

A comment titled: Thanks for keeping this topic going in response to a report titled: NORCO SWAMP WARNING!!

I would like to thank everyone for voicing their opinion on this topic. everyone's opinions will be taken into consideration when dealing with this issue during hunting season.

Also i would like to post a link to some literature that everyone could educate themselves on when they go out hunting or fishing in the near future.
